Jabra and Icron Jointly Announce USB Product Interoperability

Jabra, makers of the industry leading 180-degree Panoramic-4K plug-and-play video camera system, and Icron, the developer of ExtremeUSB® extension technology, jointly announced product interoperability between the Jabra PanaCast panoramic intelligent camera systems and Icron’s new USB 3-2-1 Raven 3104 extender system.

Jabra PanaCast deliver Panoramic-4K video quality with a 180-degree view designed to cover 100 percent of collaboration spaces as well as include all team members in the conversation. It provides real-time information to help enhance the user experience through three separate 13 megapixel cameras which concurrently work as AI sensors for advanced analytics, dual microphones for clear audio, 6x lossless digital zoom and plug-and-play USB 3.0 connectivity.

Icron’s USB 3-2-1 Raven 3104 is the world’s first backward-compatible USB 3.1 extender system supporting distances up to 100m over a single CAT 6a/7 cable, making it ideal for USB 3.1 conference cameras or any other USB device. It includes the ExtremeUSB-C suite of features such as transparent USB extension, true plug-and-play operation with no software drivers required and compatibility with all major operating systems, including WindowsÒ, macOS™, LinuxÒ and Chrome OS™.

“The Jabra PanaCast camera systems are built from a desire to create a video conferencing experience and makes participants feel as if they are all in the same room, even though they may actually be thousands of miles away from each other,” said Javed Tufail, director of International Sales and Business Development with Intelligent Vision Systems at Jabra. “High-speed USB 3.0 connectivity is critical to our customers’ experience, and interoperability with Icron’s USB 3-2-1 Raven series broadens the appeal for Jabra PanaCast’s unique and sophisticated panoramic capabilities.”

“By mimicking what the human eye is capable of, Jabra PanaCast is setting the bar higher for what customers expect for their long-distance collaboration technology,” said Thomas Schultz, senior business manager at Icron. “Icron is pleased to announce interoperability with Jabra PanaCast 3 so that USB distance limitations won’t get in the way of deployment.”
